  • Climate Alarmists Use Children to Sue Florida Governor Over Climate Change

    The New American ^ | 17 April 2018 | James Murphy
    Having witnessed the use of children to promote gun control after the Parkland, Florida, mass shooting, a group of Florida lawyers has decided to do the same thing with regard to climate change. On April 16, a squad of politically-minded ambulance chasers used a group of children as human shields by filing suit against Florida Governor Rick Scott because of Scott’s “deliberate indifference to their fundamental rights to a stable climate system in violation of Florida common law and the Florida Constitution.” Also named as defendants in the suit are Noah Valenstein, the head of the Florida Department of Environmental...
  • Jonah Goldberg’s "Suicide Of The West"

    04/16/2018 3:17:44 PM PDT · by DeweyCA · 38 replies ^ | 4-16-19 | John Sexton
    Jonah Goldberg has a new book coming out next week and today National Review published a lengthy piece adapted from the book. There’s a tremendous amount to unpack in this piece so I won’t even try to do it justice in a single blog post, but there is an idea here that really struck me as insightful and worthwhile: Conservatism is a form of gratitude. There’s a foundation to this idea. According to Goldberg, we’re living through a historical “miracle” brought about by the triumph of liberal-Democratic capitalism. On any longer time scale, Goldberg points out, our current lives are...
  • Bias against conservatives works like any other prejudice (Liberal privilege is a thing)

    Penn Live ^ | 94/11/2018 | Megan McArdle
    As for liberals: Well, guys, check your privilege. Try to really imagine what it might be like to have a conservative identity when cultural products almost all skew liberal. That is, to be one of the few acceptable villains for all the movies and jokes and television shows. To see your viewpoint systematically excluded and slighted. To have your daily life, your beliefs, routinely handled with ignorance and insensitivity.

    Many rational human beings are weary of being demonized by the hypocritical Left for alleged offenses against “humanity” or “Mother Earth.” Whether it is the likes of Al Gore or John Kerry jet-setting around the globe while screaming that the rest of us must stop consuming energy in order to save the world from man-made global warming (or is it anthropogenic global climate change?); to Leftist movie stars walking around with armed bodyguards lamenting the “dangers” of the Second Amendment; or gazillionaire New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and First Lady Michelle Obama trying to dictate what the rest of...

    The Left Kills an American President Twice The Left is not fighting racism, sexism, homophobia, income inequality or war. It is fighting us. 2018-04-06T00:09:00-04:00 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. First, Obama renamed Mt. McKinley. Now the Arcata City Council in California wants to tear down a statue of President William McKinley. “Put a rope around its neck and pull it down,” a leftist activist shouted. There were similar protests last year in Honolulu at McKinley High School, a push...

    EPA administrator Scott Pruitt has faced an "unprecedented" number of death threats, according to an agency spokesman. His statement follows reports Pruitt has spent millions on security despite no proof his life was in danger. “According to EPA’s Assistant Inspector General, Scott Pruitt has faced an unprecedented amount of death threats against him and his family,” agency spokesman Jahan Wilcox said late Friday. “Americans should all agree that members of the president’s Cabinet should be kept safe from these violent threats.” The statement was obtained Saturday by Fox News and included a list of several published reports about such incidents....

    What did Fox News' Laura Ingraham say that cost her advertisers? About David Hogg, the teenage Parkland, Florida, high school shooting survivor, Fox's Ingraham tweeted: "David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA...totally predictable given acceptance rates.)" Insensitive, given the mass shooting that killed 17 at Hogg's high school? Yes. Insulting and condescending coming from an Ivy League-educated lawyer? Yes. But the punishment does not fit the crime. Hogg urged Ingraham's advertisers to drop her show. Several did. Ingraham apologized, but Hogg refused to accept her apology....

Unidentified individuals being allowed to vote in U.S. elections, riots at universities with the intention of preventing any discussion that does not agree with theirs. These realities are all happening now, and are all symptoms of a political plague that has been visited upon America and...

    With the reboot craze in full swing, it was probably always just a matter of time before Roseanne returned to our screens. In its heyday, the series was the #1 program on TV, and it remained within the top 20 for eight seasons. Acclaimed for its realistic portrayal of blue-collar families as well as progressive takes on everything from race to sexuality, Roseanne opened the door for countless sitcoms that came after it. One thing that was also notorious about the series during its initial run was the backstage turmoil and constant presence in the press; star Roseanne Barr famously...

    Fox News called the campaign to drive advertisers away from Laura Ingraham’s show “agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” as the network showed support for the embattled host. “We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored,” Fox News co-president Jack Abernethy said in a statement Monday to multiple newsorganizations. “We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.” Ingraham is off the air of her TV show, “The Ingraham Angle,” this week on a preplanned vacation, Fox News told The Washington Post Saturday.

    Former President Barack Obama (I love the adjective preceding his title) made some comments at the recent Global Opinion Leaders Summit in Japan that I can't let slide, so please forgive me.

You could have a disagreement, but basic things got done. ... And some of the reason for that is ... it used to be that in the United States, there...

If You’re Not Having Sex Right This Second, You Are a Loser When all the winners on the screen that you’re supposed to root for are having sex the way most of us are shaking hands, it makes a lot of people in the real world think they should be doing the same thing.

  • Leftists Own Every Propaganda Tool — Yet Cannot Win Over Americans

    03/25/2018 2:34:08 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 35 replies
    It’s stunning how thoroughly the American Left dominates every lever that moves the American culture, that shapes the broad narrative and forms public opinion — and yet it does not dominate in either the elections or in polls on self-identification. While it is amazing Republicans can ever win in such an environment of dominant cultural institutions being leftist and Democratic, this is actually wildly good news. It means, unbelievable enough, that Americans are still strongly resistant to the kind of collectivist, subservient mindset that is rampant in an ever-diminishing Europe. It means that while Americans are not exactly of the...
  • Pollak: March for Our Lives – This is What Demagoguery Looks Like

    Breitbart ^ | 24 Mar 2018 | Joel B. Pollak
    There are three things to know about the March for Our Lives on Saturday. One is that the protests banned speakers who support the Second Amendment — including student survivors like Kyle Kashuv and relatives of victims like Hunter Pollack. As far as protecting the lives of students is concerned — which is, ostensibly, the entire point — the march organizers were uninterested in an open conversation about what might actually be effective. The second thing to know is that President Donald Trump had already banned bump stocks and signed expanded background checks and school safety measures into law by...

    Widespread corruption and never ending scandals in Brazil seem to be turning that lush and large country into another Venezuela which has resulted in turmoil,pain and political chaos. Unquestionably Brazil’s current woes can be traced back to Lula and his regime of hate and socialism. He has paved the way for the corruption to a level to unseen in modern history anywhere on the planet. I was surprised, dismayed, and in total shock when I found out that the leaders of the Democratic Party have sided with Lula to save him from prison, siding with a person who is no...

    The March for Our Lives school walkouts this week certainly garnered plenty of media attention. Of course, the students who favor strict gun control laws received far more media love than the ones who support the Second Amendment and hardening schools as potential targets, but that’s really just another day that ends in a “Y” for most of the media. One of the walkouts, however, missed out on the attention it might have merited. It took place at Harbor Elementary School in New London, Connecticut. If the phrase “elementary school” already caught your attention you’re on the right track. To...

    Kathy Griffin Is Back: Controversial Comedian Is “So Grateful” Her Carnegie Hall Show Sells Out in A Day There are about 20 seats left in all of Carnegie Hall that haven’t been sold for Kathy Griffin’s comeback concert on June 26th. Most of those seats have obstructed views, or are so high up that you’d need binoculars to see the comedian whose career was almost kiboshed for good last year. What happened? In May 2017, famed photographer Tyler Shields shot her holding the bloody, decapitated head of Donald Trump. The right wing went crazy, she was criticized and ostracized. How...

    These harrowing pictures of a teenage girl awaiting her torture and death at the hands of Nazi torture specialists lay bare the tragic human toll of the Holocaust. The gaunt face of 14-year-old prisoner Czesława Kwoka stares back through time in a haunting Auschwitz mugshot restored this year by Brazilian artist Marina Amaral. Taken just minutes after she was beaten to within an inch of her life, the images give a human face to one of the concentration camp’s 1.1 million victims.

    Don't politicize the Parrot. That's the sentiment of some on social media who are upset the Pirate Parrot appeared along with team President Frank Coonelly at the Republican Committee of Allegheny County's annual Spirit of Lincoln Dinner on Thursday night. Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, headlined the event in Green Tree, which drew more than 500 people. Before it started, Washington Post reporter James Hohmann posted an image to Twitter of the Pirate Parrot standing in a hallway outside a ballroom at Green Tree's DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. The Parrot was giving a thumbs-up.

    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is an anti-Semite. This isn't in question. It's a fact, and one the minister continues to underscore with each speech. Last week, he spoke before the 2018 Saviours' Day event in Chicago. He stated: "White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God's grace, has pulled the cover off the eyes of that Satanic Jew, and I'm here to say your time is up, your world is through." Just for good measure, he added, "Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting...
